True Blood Season 7 Spoilers part 3

Spoilers part 1, spoilers part 2 at these links, also on the right side of the blog.
Look out, Bon Temps — there’s about to be a new vampire heartthrob in town, Riley Smith is gearing up to glamour fans with his exciting new role. The actor will take on the part of a sexy, rock 'n' roll vamp by the name of Keith. More at TV Rage but the spoilies are below.
TVRage: What can you tell us about your character?
Riley Smith: I’m playing Keith, who’s the new vampire for the seventh and final season. I’m going to get introduced in Episode 4 and then I’ll be with the show for the remainder of the season. Right now we’re actually filming Episode 5. I’m also going to be Arlene’s love interest, played by Carrie Preston, and I think that’s pretty much all I can talk about at this point.
TVRage:  Keith is immediately attracted to Arlene upon seeing her. Can you give any hints as to how the two of you first meet?
Smith: We meet on a mission where the vampires are trying to save some of the cast that are in trouble. That is how Keith and Arlene meet. Keith is saving Arlene from a serious situation and that’s their meet-cute, so to speak. And that’s what kind of brings Keith into that world.
I don’t know how much the audience knows so far about what’s going on, but there’s a big part of the first three episodes of Season 7 that’s leading up to this major thing that occurs in Episode 4 and it’s going to be a big situation. Episode 4 was a huge — I think it was like a 25-day shoot for us. There’s a huge fight and a lot of the main characters are in some serious trouble, so I’m recruited by James [played by Nathan Parsons] to come help and that’s what introduces Arlene and Keith. And that’s how they meet and they create their own relationship, which we’re just now starting to get into.

Aaron Christian Howles and Noah Matthews will return for the final season of True Blood, in a big way, GoodHollywood.com can exclusively confirm. Howles and Matthews play brothers Rocky and Wade Cleary, respectively.
"Our characters are involved in a plot this season." Howles said. Howles also said this is his biggest acting role so far. GoodHollywood.

Interview with Denis O'Hare, our forever king-
According to O’Hare, Peterson had the idea for An Iliad and approached O’Hare in 2004 about the project.
“At that time, we were in two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and Lisa was sort of wondering where the theatrical literature was that was exploring the fact that we were now a nation permanently at war,” O’Hare said. “She wasn’t really finding anything. She began to look at ancient literature for great war plays or war poems and she came across ‘The Iliad.’ She asked if I would be interested in developing a piece with her and I said, ‘Sure.’”
O’Hare and Peterson first worked together in 1987 when Peterson hired O’Hare to be in a play in Chicago. Even though they both enjoyed working together, they wouldn’t combine their efforts again until “An Iliad.”
O’Hare has taken “An Iliad” all over the country. Since the show has been so successful, O’Hare and Peterson decided to write another show — this time one that featured the Bible.
“It’s called ‘The Good Book,’ which is a play about the Bible and the history of the Bible and how it evolved,” O’Hare said. “We work via Skype, we work on the phone, we work in person, we take retreats together to write side by side, we research together … We very rarely butt heads. Occasionally we do because everybody does, but even when we do that, we both know when to back off or when to let the other person win.”
Of course, O’Hare has the evil and sadistic Russell from “True Blood” under his belt, but he also has made a name for himself on shows such as “American Horror Story,” “The Good Wife,” and movies such as “Milk,” “J. Edgar,” and “Dallas Buyers Club.”
Still, most folks will recognize him from the horror shows. His work in the movie “Quarantine,” helped push him into that genre.
“It was my first time doing [a horror movie] and I went into it with a shrug and I thought, ‘Well, everyone does a horror film every now and then, so I’ll do it,’” O’Hare said. “When I got ‘True Blood,’ I didn’t think of it as horror. … With ‘American Horror Story,’ it’s definitely horror, there’s no two ways around it. But it’s so inventive and so insane … the first year was a haunted house, the next year it was an asylum, the third year was witches and this year it’s going to be circus freaks.
“Acting is acting and when you have a scene where you have to rip somebody’s spine out of their body, you still have to approach it like an actor and think, ‘What am I feeling about this moment? What am I thinking about this? Why am I doing this?”
“Obviously, I’m a human being and I have a point of view,” O’Hare said. “I have a lesson or a message that I hope I can impart. But I don’t think we can necessarily control what an audience takes away. … I don’t even know if it’s reducible to a message because it’s a big piece and it has many, many, many messages. … We would ask the audience to simply meditate in a way on these characters and come up with their own reaction and their own conclusions.”

Is It Still Hiatus?

New Promo
HBO's True Blood site, from Labor Day.
Andra knows what fans need, this one would make a grade A promo. Go to youtube and likielikelike this.
Don't forget to check out the latest spoilers for Season 7, updated often so keep up!
                                          Vulture has some good news for Urno
Denis O’Hare long ago wrapped his American Horror Story: Coven role as loyal manservant Spaulding, but he took home a notable memento. “I loved Spaulding ... and his dolls,” he told Vulture at last night’s opening of Of Mice and Men on Broadway. “I kept one. A little one. I can't talk about it. I think Ryan [Murphy] would let me go, for that.” Murphy also wouldn’t appreciate O’Hare doling out spoilers for the upcoming American Horror Story: Freak Show, but the actor was willing to oblige just a bit: While he spent last season gazing at Jessica Lange oh-so-lovingly, next season will find the pair at odds. “I’m going to be working at cross-purposes with her. We’re going to be like this,” he said, crossing his fingers. “We’ll have lots of scenes with each other, but we’ll be battling.” O’Hare said that the new character will be featured in all ten episodes (unlike the oft-missing Spaulding), and while he wouldn’t give away spoilers, he also let loose this one little tidbit about his character’s place in the season: Instead of playing a freak himself, the character will be “a collector of freaks.” A man after Ryan Murphy’s own heart.
Anna's role in the new X-Men movie is now a cameo, at least she isnt cut out altogether as previously reported. From Variety-Although director Bryan Singer said back in December that Anna Paquin wouldn’t appear in the upcoming “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” it looks like her character Rogue will be in the movie, after all.
A Fox rep told BuzzFeed that Paquin will return to the the film. “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo,” the rep said.
Paquin’s name can be seen in the credits of the latest “Days of Future Past” trailer. She appeared in the first three movies of the growing franchise.
Because the movie combines the casts of the original “X-Men” trilogy (including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart) with those of 2011′s “First Class” (Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy), Singer said late last year that he had a lot of content and characters to tackle in the editing process.
He therefore cut Paquin’s only scene, a rescue sequence shot early in production with McKellen, Stewart and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), when it proved to be “extraneous.”
The movie hits theaters on May 23.


The movie looks like the best one yet, all of the previous movie's stars in one. The Sentinals always were the scariest creatures to me, I admit they gave me FRIGHTS!

Got any Person of Interest spoilers? — Brent
Carrie Preston will return in the April 29 episode as Finch's former flame Grace, but don't expect a romantic reunion. In fact, given the war between Decima and Team Machine, Grace's return is probably the last thing Finch wants. "Finch created [the Machine] as a black box... to avoid a situation where someone with absolute power could corrupt absolutely," executive producer Jonathan Nolan says. "Samaritan doesn't have any of those checks in place, so Greer and Decima are free to use it to give them as much leverage as possible over their enemies. Harold Finch has precisely one point of leverage — and that's Grace."

Bloody Rebirth

Pay your last respects. ’s final season begins June 22nd at 9pm.
Urno is having a very rough month, so the posts have been slow in coming (lots of things in Urno's life are slow to come) but we have faith and hopefully it will all turn out for the better. Thanks to those who have hung in there with us and to the rest, well Eric says it best.

Pretty sure we posted this video or one from the same cooking demo a while back but who'd complain about a rerun of the Skars?

Denis O'Hare will most likely be in next season's American Horror Story, "Freak Show". It was announced at the Paleyfest panel for the show.
Denis O’Hare was in the same two seasons of “AHS” as Jamie Brewer, skipping over “Asylum.” Will it be every other “American Horror Story” for Denis O’Hare?
CraveOnline: Are you going to be in “Freak Show?”
Denis O’Hare: I don’t know. We are in talks and we’re hoping to get resolution. I will do anything for Ryan. He knows that and I would hope so.
What was your favorite moment from “Coven?”
Denis O’Hare: I love so many moments. I love being in my little dollhouse room sitting with my dolls. I absolutely loved it. I also loved Jessica in bed when we had that little scene where I fed her medicine to make her revive. I just love that whole scene. I also love everything Frannie Conroy did, that was great and I also loved watching Kathy Bates. I thought her scenes were so fantastic.
Are there any cool extras on the DVD that you’re involved with?
Denis O’Hare: I don’t know. There was one scene we did that got cut, a sex scene between Emma Roberts and I.
From which episode?
Denis O’Hare: I can’t remember. It was a pretty intense scene and I’m curious to see what it looked like.

Anemic

Sorry for just updating this old post but dyammmmm, I'm tired, what a week.
An interview with passionate American actor Denis O’Hare, seen recently on stage in An Iliad, and on screen in Dallas Buyers Club.
ALEXANDER BISLEY: Congratulations on Dallas Buyers Club. There were three strong male performances.
DENIS O’HARE: Thanks. It was a nice part. I liked it. You know, it was funny because I happen to know a lot about AIDS and about HIV, and I know a lot about the early day of AIDS because I was around then. As a gay man, I had to be thinking about it—what do I do to protect myself? How does the virus work? My first boyfriend died of AIDS in 2000. He was on all the medications and it still didn’t manage to work for him. A cousin of mine is a long-term survivor of HIV and there were some things in the movie that were frustrating for me because it’s not that they were inaccurate, but that they weren’t promoted.
The story they were telling was not about the doctors, for instance. So the doctors become reduced to cardboard characters a little bit. I fought against that. The director and I tried to make the character a little more well rounded but when it comes down to it, it’s not the doctor’s story; it’s Matthew McConaughey’s story and his character is really against the system. But the system wasn’t entirely wrong. In order to test a drug, you have to have a double blind study—that means somebody’s not getting the drug. That’s how you test drugs. Call it immoral and unethical, but it’s scientific. In the movie, that’s presented as an evil thing but it’s not an evil thing, it’s the way medicine works. They also show the experimental protocol that he goes to Mexico to see as this very positive thing and the doctor was very, very nice. Well guess what? They didn’t work. He died. And now historically we know that they didn’t work-
AB: He survived way longer than the thirty days your Dr. Sevard dramatically gives him-
DO: Yeah, partly because he stopped drinking and stopped abusing his body and started becoming healthy. Who’s to say if he hadn’t taken the AZT medication, who knows if he would have lived longer? AZT was toxic in the early stages, but it became the gold plate standard of medication later, in combination with other drugs. The movie doesn’t really tell that story. It was not the story it was telling, but I also feel that people could draw the wrong conclusion—to think that AZT was evil. It wasn’t evil. It became the thing that saved many, many people’s lives.
AB: I did see that brief little endnote at the film’s conclusion.
DO: Which was put in because of an activist named Peter Staley who got involved in the end parts of the film and he insisted that they correct certain things. Thank God for that.
AB: As actors, what makes McConaughey and Leto special to work with?
DO I didn’t work with Jared, so I really can’t speak for him, although I will say that we shared a van more than one day and he was always in character and pretty much kept to himself, which is interesting. I saw him in a couple of scenes and he was always in character. Matthew is a really intense guy. He’s the best kind of narcissist; meaning that he only cares about what works for him and his character. But that’s what all actors really need to focus on. He takes care of himself in performance. He’s intense to work with. I mean, I got thrown up against the wall by him eight times in a row and even with all that weight he’d lost, he was still powerful. I have souvenirs.
AB: A skinny Texan is still a Texan?
DO: Exactly. There you go. Read more of this very well done interview at the

Coming to theaters August 15, 2014! The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The film is based on Lois Lowry's beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.  thegiverfilm.com/  facebook.com/TheGiverMovieOfficial
